Good performance until it overheats
When it works, it's great. But it's got over-heating issues, especially if you've got it in a case. It both directly shuts down because of heat, and stops charging because of heat so that your battery dies.
The display can also be quite difficult to see in the sun. It has an auto setting for brightness, but doesn't seem to work right.
The battery goes way too quickly when you are using it. Luckily, it's removable (replaceable)

Since I got my hands on the first LG 3 I just fell in love. I love them for all their details and operation. Now and from Hurricane Maria I have one a little behind, but it works wonders for me. I do not change them and if they are not LG, I do not want another brand. Congratulations;*

Love This Phone. Glad I Upgraded
I have had an LG G3 for the past 2 5 years and it had become my favorite phone of all time, until I just upgraded to the G4. I know there have been professional reviewers that had said there wasn't much difference between the G3 and G4 except for the camera, but do not agree. Being a long time user of the G phones, I have noticed improvements such as the speakerphone is not only louder, but callers are crystal clear. I was surprised by this having read a few professional reviews saying the speakerphone was muffled. I don't know what phone they were using, but it is defiantly not muffled. The upgrades to the camera are great for me as a semi-professional landscape photogrpher. allowing me to manually adjust the camera's ISO and shutter speed. I don't always have my camera with me, so when I see a shot I have no problem just using my phone.
But the main reason I bought the G4 was the WiFi calling feature. I live in the part of the Sonoma wine country that was devastated by the wildfires back in October 2017. Since then cell phone service has been spotty, getting 1 bar or no bars thoughout the area on my G3. Now with the G4, I just turn on WiFi calling and I can make calls from anywhere in the county. OuItside of the area is 5 bars without using Wifi calling. All and all after doing countless research and reading reviews, I believe I couldn't have made a better choice.
